May 17 ONP Obstruction
« on: 05/19/15, 07:23 PM »

Pleasantly surprised to find some decent turns in and around the Obst Point region. A bit sloppy on southern exposures with some minor wet loose slides.  It set up great on the north side though.   Should hang around for at least a week or so. Road currently snow free to Obst but closed at Waterhole  Roll Eyes An electric bike would be a good idea  Wink

So is the road passable all the way through via bike?

Yes, the road is clear of snow and bikable to Obstruction Point.  However, the gate is close so there is no car access past Waterhole as of Thursday May 21. I could open any time though so I would call the park prior to making the drive over.
